Make It Easy By Toots Lorraine

i make a fool of myself valli

So what’s in a name? Toots Lorraine is a name that oozes swing and jump blues from a past era. The sound is crisp and modern but Toots and her backing band mine the musical heritage of a by-gone era.

Her new album, titled Make It Easy, is a combination of smooth originals and blusy covers of Howlin’ Wolf, Joe Turner, and Bib Mama Thornton. Songs such as “Let Your Tears Fall Baby,” “Built For Comfort,” “Hindsight,” and “Why Did You Stop Tryin’” are nice trips through the swinging side of the American blues.

Toots Lorraine and her backing band have produced an album that is worth seeking out. Something old, something new, something for any lover of the blues.
